Hey, hey Stampers!  Happy Wednesday!  

I am especially happy today as this is the second Wednesday of the month....that means Around The World On Wednesday Blog Hop!  

This is a global blog hop with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world.  Each month we have a specific theme and base our project on that theme.  

This month it was "You've Got Mail, with a specific focus on the inside"  hmmmm....I will admit this one was a challenge for me.

I can make a wow on the outside no problem....but the inside.....geesh!   I was stumped!

  But I went in my craft room and just sat there and found a stamp set and it went on from there.  This card was VERY time-consuming!  Here is what I came up with: 

Now from the outside, this looks like a regular card....which is what I was going for....nothing special....just a regular card.
But to up the wow factor for the inside, I used double-sided DSP for the card base and put the pretty flower print on the inside!   

I also decided to make this a fun fold with four panels that opened in different directions. I do not know the name of the fold as I have never seen one before. it is just something I made up as I went along. 

Also, I made it a peek a boo window card that worked on three of the four panels!   

Here is the card with the first panel open to reveal the same snail that was on the front with an additional tag: 

Here is the card with the second panel open to reveal the same snail that was on the front with an additional friend:

And here is the card all the way opened to reveal the fourth panel and the decorated message panel: 

The supplies that I used for this card are:
  • Cherry Cobbler card stock
  • Basic White card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Rococo Rose card stock
  • Assorted Stampin Blends
  • White chalk markers
  • Memento Black ink pad
  • Layering circle dies
  • Snailed It stamp set
  • Playful Alphabet dies
  • Hole punch (office supply) 
  • Black glittered organdy ribbon
Now I hope you enjoyed my card.....and I would love to hear your comments.

So fun, love the snails on the inside!

Safe to say you rocked the jazzing up the inside part, for sure! What a fun thing, to reveal the various layers like that but still have it look 'normal' on the outside. Very clever thinking!
